Owner of Middletown dance studio arrested for identity theft

County police say the owner of a Middletown dance studio is under arrest after she went on a spending spree with a customer's credit card info.

Police say Asa Jones of Elkton, who owns Live Love and Dance Studio, illegally charged plane tickets, a hotel room and a helicopter ride during a trip to California, to the debit card of a woman who's daughter had using the studio since last summer.

Police say Asa was arrested by officers from the County and Elkton departments Thursday at her home on the 200 block of Patriots Way in Elkton, Md., after month-long investigation.

Police say searches of her home and the studio turned up additional evidence of her connection to the crime.

She's currently being held by Elkton Police awaiting extradition to Delaware and faces charges of identity theft and unlawful use of a credit card.
